the night when he pointed out, you know, the governor romney's ideas apparently are too good to communicate to the american people. he wants to keep them a secret. doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this tax cut. he doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this defense spending. doesn't want to tell us how he will reduce the deficit. >> he did. >> he wouldn't provide any specifics that is still the problem. people are still waiting. he may have won on performance but he definitely lost on substance. >> i don't think we were watching the same debate. mitt romney said he would the no raise taxes to pay for his tax cuts. he said he was going to cut spending. even said that there would be a grade. he will not borrow money to pay for a program. he said he would cut pbs and big bird. he was very specific about what he would do. in certain places though romney questioned obama and obama just looked at him, when obama said basically you get a tax cut or a tax deduction for moving jobs overseas. mitt romney said i've been in business last 25 years, i don't know what you're talking about.

[ laughter ] now, we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. >> the romney campaign fired back, quote: president obama offered no defense of his record and no vision for the future. president obama simply offered more false attacks and renewed his call for job-killing tax hikes. earlier today, the president's senior campaign advisor david axelrod said this about the debate. the president's never satisfied with his performance. he is always challenging himself. and he will review it if he wants to make changes in the next debate, he will do so. what he was satisfied with was that he went and told the american people the truth as i mentioned polls show most americans governor romney won the debate. you can see it's not even close in this cnn survey. but almost half the viewers also said the

, carl. >> hi, brett. the romney campaign could hardly be more excited about what happened last night. in fact, since the debate ended, they say they've been getting two donations per second as a measure of mitt romney's success the morning after is general election debate debut against the president, mitt romney made a surprise appearance to a thrilled and leaved audience of conservatives. >> last night i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see two very different visions for the country. >> he reiterated a new attack. >> trickle down government that the president proposes is one where he will raise taxes on small business, which will kill jobs. i instead want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs. >> romney awoke to rave reviews across the country and democrats admit he delivered. >> virtually everything you said about my tax plan is inaccurate. that's the wrong way to go. we know that the path we're taking is not work that you're entitled to your own plane and house but not your own facts. >> quoting, though not by name, saying the middle
on wednesday night. the question for paul ryan is can he protect in a way mitt romney's achievement and can he consolidate it and after the romney debate after the ryan debate in a sense can it confirm what romney did. i think it is a very important moment. vice president biden will try very hard to retrospecktively discredit mitt romney's victory. he will say maybe obama was off his game a little. he won't say that but implication. all lies, deception, flip flopping, big mirage that you saw for 90 minutes. biden is going to come incredibly hard at romney. ryan has to defend romney and in effect consolidate romney's gains. like coming in in the second leg of a relay race. your team is ahead and you got to hold the lead and got to, of course, attack the obama biden record but above all sort of consolidate what romney did in the first debate and not let biden undercut it. >> geraldo: so you think that joe biden has to do something the president did not. he has to take it to his opponent? >> he is totally going to do that. not to ryan but to romney. if i were biden i would take all 45 minutes of
you. president obama's advisor, david axelrod acknowledging that governor romney has a great night and admitting the president will make some adjustments. president obama fought back today attacking governor romney on the campaign trail. listen. >> it could not have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to pay for the wealthy. he said he didn't know about that last night. >> despite the criticism of president obama from fellow democrats, david plouffe who managed the 2008 campaign, reportedly said the mission last night was "not for zingers." we continue with ed henry, live in denver. this was the president's first chance to come out swinging after the debate last night. >>reporter: he did. what is interesting, that runs counter to the narrative the obama camp is trying to put out it was a hollow victory for mitt romney and maybe the president did not take it on the children. to come out swinging as hard as he did at the rally in denver, that suggests he realized he had to make up for mi
a liar mitt romney is and was last night. if he was talking, he was -- testifies speaking last night, he was lying. mitt romney had a good night, but, you know, even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> brian: 09 minutes -- 90 minutes? that's like if off lucky question, that would be an apt analogy. but we don't even know any blind squirrels. >> gretchen: how will romney go on the response mode to these attacks? he did so last night on the sean hannity program. here he is reacting to the president's damage control yesterday. >> i have watched some of the attacks that have come my way. you just shake your head. i do recall that the president's acceptance speech four years ago, he said that if you don't have a record to run on, you attack your opponent. you try and disqualify your opponent and early on in this campaign, there were democrats strategists, one in particular who said their campaign strategy was to kill romney. hopefully not literally. this kind of character assassination is something which i think has gone way too far and i think is an unfortunate part of this ca
and economists have said that mitt romney has embraced for 18 months, until wednesday night, that he has a $5 trillion tax cut plan, skewed toward the wealthy and he has no details in terms of deductions or anything like that. and the independent experts that have lookad it say you have to increase taxes on the middle class to get to that 20% rate cut and $5 trillion that are skewed toward the wealthy. an average middle class family would see an average of $2,000 increase. there is no running away from that. a different mitt romney was breathtakingly dishonest on that stage. >> shannon: congresswoman, is it fair to say that there are going to be $5 trillion in cuts, even if you want to concede the point, even though sevny cutter stipulates that that is not true that, it would be a $5 trillion cut. it's only part of the story because, of course, there will be other revenue suggestions and way to make up the revenue. how do you respond? >> well, we have no idea. look, shannon, i said as a member of the budget commit. i am a former member of the appropriations committee. chairman priebeus, i am
is governor romney with sean manty last night. >> what i find so offensive about his tax plan, by raising taxes on small business, as he does, he will kill jobs. and right now, what america needs, as much as anything else is more jobs, more jobs more take-home pay. is the whole focus of my campaign. i know what the president's been campaigning on and saying about me is very different than what i actually am, what i actually believe. that is where the difference came. what the president has been saying and reality are pretty far apart. martha: that in the mix this morning. a lot to add into the picture. senior nothing correspondent john roberts is live from st. petersburg, florida, today. that's where we find governor romney. he will hold a rally there later today. what about the aspect of truth of issue in this campaign, john? >> reporter: oh, this is turning out to be a real battle between taxes and the truth, martha. let's handle taxes first of all. governor romney on the stump is insisting his 20% across the board reduction in tax rates would benefit and middle class and small business
want to see if there is a trend. you would expect it would close. romney had a very good night and he diffused a lot of the attacks that obama has been making against him for the last few months. things like he is out of touch and he is as concerned about the rich and does not care about the middle class or he is a right-wing extremist. mitt romney did not come off that way on wednesday night. i would expect it to close in the states. here is the point, if obama had a really goodnight and romney had a very bad night with the polls all showing "bomb with a big lead in the wing states, a lot people would say this race is over. that it has gotten out of hand for romney given the fact it was exactly the opposite, a big romney win, now it is a very competitive race and it ensures it will go on. it ensures it will be a tight, tough, competitive race right to election day. >>trace: i think you are right. that is chris wallace, and you lay cornell tomorrow for a huge game and right now you are 3-0. >> the sunday broadcast on local networks includes sit down to democratic governor of maryland
't have right answers the other night in the big debate. hands down most people think mitt romney did win. now the left is in full damage control mode. we are going to talk politics with geraldo and dick morris will be with us pretty soon in the 6:00 hour. the stars of the duck dynasty you ever see the show it's hilarious and funny and we have them live. fox and friends kicks off in 10 minutes right here in the fox news chair. >> it is about 10 minutes to the top of the hour. did lou gehrig die from something other than lou gehrig's disease? they wanted medical records released. they think the yankee's legend could have died because of brain trauma from concussions. ger rig has no living regular tives. the mayo clinic says his record should stay sealed. >> david blaine is preparing for his shocking new stunt in noiew york city. shocking because he will be standing in the middle of a million volts of electric current for 72 hours. the public will be able to control the level of electricity being released. blaine will be wearing a chain metal body suit as a barrier. i don't know if that wil
. >> charles krauthammer talking about mitt romney's strategy on special report last night. what can romney do to come out on top? here is his take. >> romney did well in his debates. he got better he has done a lot of them. people are saying obama hasn't debated for a long time. he came out of nowhere beat the clinton machine. i think he is going to be strong. i think his one weak point is that he is thin skinned. if romney can manage to get under his skin in some way i think that actually happened in 08 one or two of the clinton debates. i think it could sort of puncture that aura as that obama had. i don't think there is any way you could be decisive. one thing that will help romney is always true of the challenger just being on the same stage as the president instantly raises your stature. i think if he can hold his own and perhaps prevail even to a minor extent he will reverse the momentum which has been rather negative. >> the first debate takes place tomorrow october 3rdrd. our coverage starts not a minute later p.m. meg begin k megan kelly bret bal be there live. >>> you need your firs
. >> romney advisors are just hoping for a solid performance. no knock-outs on wednesday night. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> romney advisors told me they don't expect that they could level knock-out blow against president obama. the skilled debaters such as he is. always playing the expectation game. bret? >> bret: john, thanks. >> we're just five weeks and one day away from election day. and a little more than 48 hours from the first debate here in colorado. there is more focus than ever on the battleground state, colorado of course one of them. and how the electoral college race is shaping up. join me again today and karl ro senior advisor who is in new york. back in washington, democratic strategist joe trippi. as we do every week we look at the electoral map. info on the key. red states are romney states. blue, obama. then the pinkish lean romney. light blue, lean obama. then the yellow states are tossup states. within the margin of error. this is all based on the polls within the last 30 days. okay, karl, what has changed in the last week si
making fun of himself. at a campaign event last night. out there again tonight. romney today talking about the debate. as new polls are showing a big bounce after debate. pew research center has a new poll out tonight among likely voters. look at this bounce. this change. from september 12 to 16, he was down 8. now up 4 among likely voters. this is pew. that is looking at again, about 1100 likely societ voters. look at another poll, political poll for choice of president. one point, president obama over romney. this was october 1-4. it does not really get a full sense of october 3 debate. you have gallup. post debate. there you see the before and after. tied. again, that is registered voters not likely voters. gallup hasn't changed that. one more back to politico voter look. this is likely voters. you see the split among supporters. some of that poll is before the debate. so we're already starting to see some of the effect of what both sides are calling a strong debate performance by romney. bring in the panel about the state of the race. hayes for "weekly standard." a.b. stoddard, f
mitt romney was last night. if he was talking, if he was speak he was lying. >> i think that we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night on the debate stage with barack obama. we didn't expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show up and that's what we got in mitt romney. >> many people are situation they saw is a governor romney they had known all along and what is the problem in the past is they haven't seen that person and he final emerged during the debate. >> you mean he lied through his teeth in the republican primaries when he said he was going to cut taxes for the american people. he's the etch-a-sketch guy. we always have to wonder which mitt is going to show up. if you lay out lie after lie after lie about your own plan as well as what the president has been talking about of course you can look good. megyn: doug schoen is a former adviser for president clinton and pat caddell for president carter. >> this comes from the top. they regroup the obama campaign after the debate, a disastrous debate by all polls and all accounts and they decide they had to go
. and since wednesday night's big debate as the latest jobs report. and just this morning, governor romney already getting in some more prep time for next week's debate. and before hitting the campaign trail, in the key battle ground state of florida. and senator-- the national correspondent john roberts joins us live now from the city apopka. and the governor is scheduled to attend a rally. tell us about it. >> we've got a little bit after florida thunderstorm popped up and expected to be gone by the time the governor hits the stage here, and travelling on the i-4 corridor where elections are won and lost in florida and even up, rasmussen has romney up by a couple of points and trying to keep the momentum going from the great debate performance and trying to show voters he's not the scary guy that the obama campaign makes him out to be. and stopping by in a cuban restaurant and shaking hands with the folks and getting takeout and at the a campaign event in st. petersburg looking back on the president's debate performance which many saw as a flop. >> and did you hear what he had to say? i
important night of mitt romney's life. bill: he talked about something bigger than that, and that's a path forward for america. he talked about a choice. you can go one way or come follow me. >> i think the president will be staying the course. saying the economy is getting better and also defining mitt romney. he has to make this about a choice, not a referendum on his first term. bill: if there is a surprise what do you think it might be? >> i think romney has to throw the president off stride. he has got to get under his skin. maybe he mentions president obama's penchant for playing golf when the economy is ouring. bill: does one have more to lose than the other? >> i think the president has more to lose. in 2008 he had that line against hillary clinton. he said you are likeable enough, hillary. that basically cost number new hampshire. he has the lead but he has the most to lose. but he can't be too careful because if you are too careful you are not going to win. bill: when you consider colorado, those folks are dialed in on this election. here is martha. martha: no doubt governor romn
romney we saw on wednesday night, we have to see it again and again and again. and his campaign, greg, needs to make us see him. we are a little stressed in analyzing this race that since thursday morning they are not capitalizing well enough. their tv ads are not running clips from the debate highlighting the great performance. it is not on the ads. >> it has changed a little bit. i want to ask you about the performants because people say well, that was not really president obama, he was off the game. if you actually watch president obama without a teleprompter in news conferences, he fumbles, stumbles and mumbles, he goes on and on like a recovery and he never answered the question. >> that is true. he did not draw a clear distinction between him record and the positions that governor romney has taken. john is right, he did not make the kind of charges he has made successfully about cutting medicare and medicaid, social security. the bottom line, romney was able to move to the center, obama fell apart, i think, even worse than you are saying. he looked like he was not up to the job.
romney looking smart and in control the other night and setting it apart from sparring as someone in the midst of a debate. people walk away with a subliminal impression of the man, apart from the fog of media that he has been laboring under for so many months. >> you watch him and if you take away politics, and watching both of their performances, the command of the subject material, which person would you rather have guide you through a crisis? a crisis of any sort? how to fix it and put it together, a pathway out. watching and listening to them carefully, i don't think there's a question that you should follow someone like mitt romney. his thought process, his approach to a problem is very specific, specific way of answering questions, he would do the one, two, three area loyally. very businesslike. that is comforting to people who are anxious. he was stop and start and we were not sure where he was coming from at times. he became very reassuring to a very nervous nation on wednesday night. that was comforting to a lot of conservatives and a lot of people who were undecided. me
celebrating his wedding anniversary, as you know fell on the night of the debate. so mitt romney was unencumbered on the campaign trail. there was no response that the president could give to anything that mitt romney did. and mitt romney seemed to energize after the debate. >> every year the median income has gone down, 4,300 a family ab with average family income around 50,000 bucks, that hurts. gasoline prices are up twice what they used to be. these are tough years for the middle class and for the poor in america. and if we calculate it, by the way, our unemployment rate in a way that was consistent with the way it was calculated when he came into office, be a different number. if the number of people shall the percentage of the american population in the work force were the same today as the day he was elected, unemployment rate would be above 11%, this is inexcusable in a nation so prosperous of ours, that four years of a presidency has not been able to get america back on track. he can't, he doesn't know now, i know now and i'll get the job done. >> a bet that most of the
for president obama? >> steve: what should mr. romney do come wednesday night out in denver . we'll share the comments later on in the telecast. >> gretchen: next a warning for parents. u.s. about to face a massive diaper shortage. i am glad i am out of the diaper stage. >> eric: how john 23rd shaped the catholic church and world as we know it. ♪ ve lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. >> eric: quicked had lines. are we headed for a world wide diaper shortage. there was a chemical explosion in japan and production has come to a halt. that creates 1-fifth of the world's diapers. strong winds from a typhoon in japan picked up a car and sent it flying . the winds clocked at 80 miles per hour. steve? >> steve: i come out and how did the car get there? october the commencement of the 2nd vatican counsel.
has to shake things up, wednesday night, doesn't he. >> he is going to. every time mitt romney has been confronted in this campaign with one of these moments he has come through in a debate and performed extraordinarily well, laying out his vision very clearly and also contrasting himself and his vision with whoever his opponent was at that time. i have absolute confidence, george, all you will be shaking your head it is a brand new race. jenna: new jersey governor chris christie, making a bold prediction, how about that? the bold prediction related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larry sabato, director of center for politics at the university of virginia. larry, historically speaking how big of a deal are the first debates really? >> well it can be a dig deal, jenna. of course governor c
with the romney campaign for not making more of this. you know, romney came out late at night, the night of september 11th, after this had happened, but before he knew that ambassador stevens had been killed, came out, criticized the statement that had come out of the cairo embassy about the -- about the demonstrations there. then got a huge amount of criticism. as the facts began to pile up against obama, the romney campaign stayed somewhat silent, and has still to this day not made a lot of the problems that developed. >> the debate is built entirely around foreign policy. if romney doesn't take advantage of that platform to raise questions, again, poke holes in the president's arguments -- >> greta: why isn't he now? this is coming from the super pac. >> i think the romney campaign thinks it can wait that long, at least some people in the romney campaign, think it can wait, and want to do his foreign policy right before that debate, so there's some bringing together of these arguments. i think the time is now. you had governor romney asked about this last week on his plane. you know,
presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the obama campaign was putting up, romney staffers smiled as if to suggest they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of the debate in which the romney campaign it really defined the race, a choice between a dependency society with rising taxes that could hurt the recovery, versus the romney agenda which could cut taxes and rely fully on a smaller government and individual responsibility and entrepreneurial spirit and the romney campaign is attacking ever harder. here's a sample from last night. >> it has been calculated his tax plan raising taxes will cost 700,000 jobs. i will not raise taxes on small business and not raise taxes on middle income families. >> reporter: he will spend a little more time in florida and campaign here tomorrow and he has been doing a bit of debate prep with robhe senator from ohio and his debate sparring... playing the role of m
debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time ago about the concerns he has over his opponent's plan for medicare, while at wong man's paul ryan's event in iowa today things took an emotional term when a veteran asked him about his social security benefits and why the government taxes the only source of income for a man who dedicated his life to defending his country. >> i served in the air force in 65 straight out of high school, and i learned in the military -- [applause] >> -- the skills that i had to take me through life. i served in grenada, and i served in iran, and i live off of social security. i live off a thousand dollars a month, and i cannot understand why this country that i gave my life for feels that they should tax me twice for social security. they already taxed me for that and they take a third of it back when they give me that check. >> you
tomorrow night of imcompetence. look, mitt romney, it's all on him. all on him. all president obama has to do is basically just be himself and not say anything, just repeat the same old thing. mitt romney has to convince the american people that going forward, he's a better alternative than the president. it's not going to be easy. so he's going to have to paint the president as an incompetent. this libya thing can be part of that, but certainly the economy, way more important to the folks than libya. but he can weave it. the second thing is that romney has got to kind of put aside his politician persona. i mean, he looks perfect, right? he looks like a president should look. but that's not working against him because people don't know who he is. he's got to find a way to say look, this is who i am. this is why i'm better. in very simple terms. it's daunting task for the governor. >> gretchen: yeah, it is. because if he comes across as sort of being in attack mode, which a lot of republicans want him to be, then the press might say, oh, wow. he really went too far. >> he can't care abou
's the plan to fix it? what's the goal? how are we going to do this? and whether -- in our polls, in romney's case. but the other night, he made a case. he said, i am going to get the economy going. this is how i'm going to do it. lots of people are going to debate that. but obama presented no plan on the key issue of jobs. >> sean: absolutely. now he has a problem. fewer yoagain. 2012, less than 2011, less than 2010. you know... government growth expanding. anyway, bob, congratulations on the success of the book. always like having you back. thank you for being with us. >> sean: coming up next, we are rallyingarn the new economic patriot. >> that is rooted in the core belief that built this country. >> sean: economic patriotism, the president can be the be talking about $6 trillion in new debt. is this the new buzzword for fair share? when we come back, the one and only charles krauthammer will weigh in, straight ahead. hahahaha! hooohooo, hahaha! this is awesome! folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. i'd say happier than a slinky on an escalator. get happy.
to campaign carl cammeron with the romney camp. carl, this is his big night. what's the thinking about the mood in that campaign? >> well, they kept mr. romney under wraps today in order to keep him focused. he had a very brief meeting with his senior staff and great deal today was actually spent with his staff. they don't want to leave it in the locker room they want him to come out and bring best game this evening. they are quite confident about it by virtue stepping on to the stage tonight as the challenger, mitt romney has the most to gain. they fully expect by virtue of standing next to the president there could be a bounce in the polls as a consequence of that. having said all of they're, the race to lower's examines appears to have been won by mr. rom anymore. the latest gallup poll shows fairly decisively when it comes to who voters thinks will win the debates president obama has a substantial lead. there you see it, 57% think president obama will win the three presidential debates in the next three and a half, four weeks and that governor romney will lose them or at least a th
is distraction and accusing allies of romney of spreading the tape to the media. the romney come pain denies having -- campaign denies having any part in it. it surfaced last night on daily caller.com and thin ran on "hannity." the speech was open to the press in hampton university in june of 2007. we covered that speech on "special report" with brit hume. ran a sound bite from senator obama on his concern about the federal response to hurricane katrina. other media outlets covered it as well. but what was not covered then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now here is the thing. when 9/11
obama for having not brought up in the debate the other night. criticizing mr. romney for his now 5 month old remarks to a closed fundraiser surreptitiously videoed that he suggested 47% of americans who don't pay income taxes are looking for some sort of government handout. first he called it inelegant. never defended it and never renounced it last night on the hannity show he did so summarily. watched? >> in this case i said something that's just completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. >> completely wrong. a big jump from inelegant. having said that the romney campaign would like very much to close the chapter on this and get it behind them. the democrats today, the obama campaign, the democratic national committee and a whole bunch of other groups were firing off attack ads and groups trying to keep it center stage right through the presidential debate next week and the two presidential debates that follow. >> as you pointed out, carl it, didn't come up in this past debate may very well close the door on it yet. carl cammero
ice cream. but first from fox this monday night, governor mitt romney says america is facing more threats tonight than when president obama took office. the republican nominee for the presidency accusing our current president of leading from behind, saying and i quote, hope is not a strategy. governor romney went after the president on foreign policy today in a speech at the virginia military institute. >> i believe that if america doesn't lead, others will. others who don't share our interests and our values and the world would grow darker for our friends and for us. america's security and the cause of freedom cannot afford four more years like the last four. >> shep: his campaign was firing back before governor romney even said a single word. running a new ad, quoting critics who call the governor's foreign policy wreckless and amateurish. a new gallup poll shows governor romney gaining on the president since their first debate last week. before the debate, the president had a five-point lead in the poll and now they're dead even. look at this poll from the pugh research center,
that came out this morning, brand new, shows romney, 49, and president obama 47. >>guest: it is important to note this poll and all the one we are talking about we did last night after the debate was finished. a month ago, president obama was leading by to points in the great state of florida this is a state romney has to win. again, we are seeing a modest shift. with a four-point shift and it goes from obama up by two, to romney up by two, it is significant. >> now the great state of ohio, that poll, i saw it was obama by 8 percent or 9 percent. there is volatility in the polls. when george bush was running it showed he was up by eight or ten and in ohio he won by two. president obama has been ahead in ohio a state that mitt romney has been struggling. right now, romney is still down by a point there. but it is a competitive situation. the fact is, all three of these states have nobody, really, in the lead. they are pure toss ups. the question is whether this is just a bounce that will fade or is it something that mitt romney can build upon and carry through the remaining month. >> now,

[ laughter ] although it did mark the first time all year obama has seen something get passed. [ laughter ] >> steve: funny. >> brian: i did not hear that. is that the premise of that joke true? that he watched four hours of football? >> martha: you can also go back to the notion that it shouldn't take that much studying to get ready for this. >> steve: you should know. >> martha: they've been working on these issues, they've been campaigning on these issues across the country for months and months and months. does it really take that much studying to get ready for this? >> brian: is it wrong to disagree with martha? >> martha: absolutely. ask hemmer. >> brian: i think it's totally different when someone is coming at you and saying you're wrong about this and defending something yo
